Years ago (circa 1997) I used to buy cross stitch magazines as if they were going out of fashion. At some point whilst moving house at a later date I took out all the patterns that I liked and thought I might actually sew at some point in the future. I still have a whole ring binder full of these and last week vaguely remembered one pattern that I thought may work as something to go on the nursery wall.
A good rummage in the attic and hey presto here it is! Ten in the bed is a lovely pattern and should look good on the wall whether Baby C is a boy or a girl.
A quick trip to good old John Lewis and I've got the aida and most of the thread that I need (how can they have sold out of black embroidery thread?) and I'm ready to go. Fingers crossed that it doesn't take more than four months to complete!
